Over the past 10 years Deloitte has conducted studies that track the latest thinking and actions of Central European CFOs who represent the largest and most influential companies in Central Europe.
The Central European CFO study is firmly established as the annual barometer of CFOs’ sentiment and strategies in the region. It is the survey that gauges attitudes to valuations, risk and financing. Most importantly, it is an invaluable benchmark for CFOs in evaluating the financial attitude of their peers in the corporate community around Central Europe.
The goal for this year’s survey is to capture the shifts in CFOs’ opinions on topics including risk, GDP growth, financing priorities and the most recent issues facing business. We also want to understand how confident CFOs are about major factors influencing their M&A decisions, e.g. political and regulatory hurdles or economic situation. We are as well examining companies’ M&A objectives and execution priorities.
As the COVID-19 pandemic resets major work trends, we are asking CFOs about their estimations of what portion of work in their businesses will be done remotely in the upcoming months and about costs of upskilling and reskilling their employees in the recent months.
